Copying resources

You can copy resources from one Workbench location to another (for example, from one project to another project).

  1. In one of the navigation views, select the resources that you want to copy.
  2. From the pop-up menu, select Copy.
  3. In one of the navigation views, select the project or folder where you want to copy the resources to.
  4. From the pop-up menu, select Paste.

Tip: You can also copy resources by holding down the Ctrl key and dragging them from the original location to the new location in one of the navigation views.

Copying a linked resource always copies the link and not the resource that it is linked to. E.g., when copying a linked folder the folder contents is not copied on the file system. Instead, a new linked folder is created linking to the same location on the file system.
